Hello. This is my first post to the eden lit club and it is a free verse poem. I hope you like it.


~ Heart and Mind


How does one see what is truth and lie? It's like watching flame and shadow. The two blur together like the ocean and the shore you don't really know where one ends and the other begins.

What separates pain from anger both make your face burn and your eyes turn red. Tears can fall with both and both tend to lead to rash thought and action.

To protect those you love from one moment of pain do you allow them to run from it or turn all that energy into anger at you? Do you call them out and try to prevent them from escaping or do you let them have their way and hurt themselves, emotionally, in the process?

How do you handle your own anger in all of this? When the person only sees someone week and crying not the tank of anger and odd numbness. Do you let them think you are simply week and hide the anger?

Questions from the mind. Emotions from the heart. In the end the mind and heart are the most deadly of all things. For they are what set all things into motion.

I like this. I need to ponder it again. Is the word "week" in the fourth paragraph spelled "weak"? You have wonderful thoughts here. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice. Such a huge dichotomy and you state those aspects very well.

That's an interesting question actually. We might do a club duscussion on word choice based on this.

It happens! it's worse when you go through reams of editing and several people miss it. I loved the poem, it is very evocative and personal!

I enjoy work that makes one questions thoughts and things about them.

Thank-you for sharing.
